... There hasn't been too much scenery bar the palm farms and irrigation fields. It is 31c and v nice to get some warmth even if it is a bit hazy. We are now in 5 star luxury but unable to use the gym, being a woman. What a shame (not). What's worse however is the same applies for the pool! No relaxing by the pool on my day off then!
